Maybe you have an opinion concerning this issue:
PV animals were and are very rare items many collectors look for. I am not a business-oriented collector but i now can replace species from my wishlist as Diana monkey, leatherback turtle, with very detailed figurines released by modern companies. So the "unusual and exclusive"-species bonus of some PV will disappear soon. Is this also a factor having kept prices high?
Think of the bowhead whale for instance: now also available from two further companies,....
What do you think?

Well, I think the huge diversity CollectA is offering more the interesting diversity of Mojo will have an impact over some brands that were wished due to their diversified range. Though, PV continues offering much more than these brands together and I believe this impact will be minimal and take a long time to have a visible effect.
Also, many PV collectors, are people that love to collect small figures, 3 inches, not much larger and these figures from modern brands are usually too large when compared with PV.
What I think that will have some impact to PV prices are these sets we can find now almost everywhere with PV figures under different names or even marked PV, if they start appearing and being inexpensive as they were originally , obviously the only PV figures that will keep some value are those that we cannot find in these sets. Very Happy

Who knows ? Of course I understand your point Rogério and Philipp but... Who knows ?

Except the Waterbuck, JEOL produced very common animals and they are now not very cheap on eBay affraid  No need of elephants, zebras but a need of JEOL elephants and zebras.

The Möjo emu will have no impact on the BF or STARLUX emu prices.

If PV is a Major brand for collectors, IMHO we will know it very soon Wink

Good points, Gentlemen !!!

The small PV-models have a very special charm of their own, which makes them very appealing to collectors.

I wonder how many collectors only want one of each species ? I have no idea Rolling Eyes 

Perhaps we will see the opposite effect, - with the diversity and beauty of Mojo and Collecta, there may even come more collectors in the future scratch

 In this sense, PV might be much like brands such as Elastolin, Britains, Breyer and Starlux.  
Good point. I buy Breyers because they're Breyer, not because of the breed of horse. If CollectA produces a Marwari for 2015 (that would be GREAT! bounce bounce ) doesn't mean the value of the Breyer Marwari will decrease. Smile




I don't think the price of PV will change. sunny

Hmm... That's an interesting thought. I'm not very familiar with PV animals, so all I can offer is that if major brands start making rarer animals( collectA and Mojo) then maybe it will revitalize all the other brands to do he same to compete (Schleich etc.)

For me as species collector, the new figures from Mojo and CollectA are such a good thing :) I already have replaced some of the PV figures with the new releases.
But PV has still a huge range of unusual species and I think the prices will be very high...
As Susanne said, a lot of the collectors, appreciate the small size of PV Wink And I also love those figures...such a shame that there aren´t more PVs available Sad

No, they are NOT becoming cheaper, in the contrary: they are more and more expensive. For example, on EBay, the PV Eryops is on sale for no less than 24,95$. And do you know how much I paid for my Tigers, Bears and Wolves Mint-On-Card sets (yes, I now have the National Geographics Playvisions Wolves set)? Around 40$ each!!! And that excludes the shipping. So, Playvisions animals are harder and harder to get; not only because they are rare, but because they are also more and more expensive. I think it goes together...

I agree that PV from sites such as eBay aren't very cheap these days, but you have to keep in mind that you're responding to a topic from over 4 years ago. Maybe at that time the online prices of PV figurines were decreasing Wink

I know this topic is not new. Though, I was surprised to read that PV were cheaper SEVENTEEN YEARS AFTER their release; usually, toys lower in value around five years after their release, and start to become pièces of collection (when they do) at the average age of ten. So, to me, it was surprising to read PV toys still weren't expensive collectibles past the age of fifteen.
